As an employer of labour in the United Kingdom, it is important that you are up to speed with your obligations towards preventing illegal migrant working. The Immigration Act 1996 renders it a criminal offence to have in employment someone who has no right to work in the UK or rights to do the work you are offering.
Importantly, different visas have different work restrictions. Business organisations must understand these restrictions and act in compliance with those rules. Businesses are also required to check and copy certain original documents of employees (migrant) to serve as defense against conviction for supporting illegal migrants working in the UK.
Employers must understand that immigration compliance is not just about illegal migrant working or simply refusing to recruit persons who do not have rights to work, it involves much more than that. Adequate HR systems must be in place to check that workers who have limited time to work do not work exceed their working hour restrictions; ensuring that an employee who was erstwhile a legal worker is not now illegal; ensuring that part time workers based on work restrictions only work part time, etc.
